My name is Rena Dee® and I am a doll that was created by children in the Dialysis unit. For the last 10 years, I have served as a Patient Ambassador for Texas Children’s Hospital’s Renal Program.
In that capacity, I have traveled all over the world. On my 1st tour, I traveled to 10 children’s hospitals — including one in Nottingham, England. My travel luggage includes a passport, a journal, postcards, clothing and photographs of friends. I’m a traveling support group for connecting kids.
In my visits, I encourage wellness and habilitation. Habilitation is all about staying on track so that you can enjoy the best quality of life, like staying in touch with friends. What's more, I say it is cool to be different.
Here’s an interesting detail - I have ALL green features!
